rationale in many quarters, particularly higher education. the diversity rationale says we want to engage in special efforts to bring in people from all walks of life, all sectors, all regions, all ideological dispositions, all races. the reason why we want this is we believe that on our campuses there will be richer learning. there will be more learning, better learning, deeper learning takes place through the clash of perspective. and, you know, students will learn from one another. so the diversity rationale for affirmative action. that's some of the why affirmative action rose in the late '60s, early '70s but in these are some of the reasons that have been set for for affirmative action. okay. why is a controversial? affirmative action like all policies has cost. it has costs. what are some of those costs? there's a bunch just like there's a wide range of justifications, rationale, for affirmative action. there's also an array of costs. i'll mention a couple. let me start off with one, stigma. it's an important one because there some people, i think he neatly of the most vociferous cr

gender parody in the work force and education but still not stem jobs and women are in the work force and college enrollment but a huge gap with men and women in stem jobs. over all increases in u.s. demand for scientist and engineers, we are going to see a much greater demand. we try to encourage women in the stem field because there is a wage gap compared to non-fields for women. those in stem field are over represented in life sciences such as biology and medicine and under represented in computer science. google shared this with the staff by the national science foundation that compares the number of stem job openings with the number of college graduates through 2018. so we have a gaping hole in the number of graduates computing. there is expected to be 140,000 jobs in this field annually and only 50,000 graduates. so let's spend the next few minutes how sfusd is preparing our kids for stem fields. according to the research, there is nine computer program sections and three computer literacy classes in sfusd. the numbers are pretty low. one of the reasons is that computer science
to build an audience for it. the best way to get the word out, so to speak, and to educate people was, i thought, social media. i began. but the - my base was sci-fi geeks and nerds and i had to expand that. we tried a lot of different things. it was humour that seemed to attract a lot of people and get them to share and engage, so i started making funny comment about sci-fi and science and it expanded and i found that pictures called mims gets more, and a few kiddies gets a lot of likes and shares. so it extended more. we had a large enough audience, so i spoke about lgbt equality. there's a large overlap between sci-fi geeks and nerds and lgbt community. it exploded some more. then i introduced the sorry of the internment. people were shocked. so many people otherwise well informed didn't know about the internment. now i had people educated on the internment, i told them that we have a musical about it and we'd open in san diego at the old globe theatre and gave tastes of the songs and snippets of squeeps and developed an -- scenes, and developed an eagerness, a want to see quality, an
-- what was interesting for me is the painting of the green stripes and there's a whole education component of this in terms of how they're designing it and where vehicles -- you know, where they're proposing for vehicles and the bicycle lanes to sort of merge so that cars and trucks can make a right hand turn. i think that needs to be some thought out -- i said are you going to write on the street for right turn enter here and they hadn't thought about that so i think that's where there's potential of risk with that because i -- you know, and even after having this conversation and knowing sort of, like, the serrated green stripe means that's where a vehicle can pass through, as i was coming home i wanted to make a right on to 9th street and realized oh, i had passed that serrated area. you know, even though i had that conversation, i am still not accustomed in my mind, you know, of that's where i enter to make the right hand turn and so being cognizant of that, you know, i went up a couple more blocks before i made my right hand turn instead of doing it, but i think that there n

. the education system and afghanistan. so many of them, the number given to them is counterintuitive. so i do not use it. in terms of the lower grades, before you get to colleges and universities, before the taliban was driven out, to the extent they have been, 900,000 boys. now a million students in school . 3 million of those are girls. none of those who could've been educated before we got there with our allies. were 20,000e teachers, all male. is now 200,000 teachers. 60,000 of whom are women. health care much improved. child mortality significantly down. afghan refugees who fled pakistan have returned home. how is it that 67% of the american people recent survey think that the afghan war was not worth fighting? how did that happen? because the picture is much, much better than that number. i just don't believe that the american people have had a fair or fuller picture of the events in afghanistan. i believe that the press has missed a good story. it hasn't missed the problems. it has missed the progress. the impression that our people get doesn't come from either. it comes from what they

the last for a lot of educators and medicine still try to teach about diversity training this is a battle we have already won in california. it is fabulous that what they'd need is a direction and i think of values of what is really important. they kind of note that the health care isn't a commodity. they know that it has to be personal but even though there is a lot of melting it nobody demonstrates that. that is what i try to do for them as physically teaching them something to tell them what a wonderful profession medicine is and hopefully we can keep it that way. >> thank you for the message that medicine is personal but also not personalized. kidney talk more about those differences. >> that is the fun question. a number of you there are so many linguist personalize is the opposite of personal that means it is pretending to be personal he know when you get the wonderful hand written and throw away don't smile -- to of mail? it is personalized it is not personal it is the opposite but truth is lies personalized is not personal when the the other things that is pernicious is a virtual

, potentially you're just not able to find a good-paying full-time job, perhaps you didn't receive the education that others have received, perhaps you have got some disability, you're -- you would go under this plan on medicare -- i mean on medicaid, and then everyone in between, the lowest income and the age of 65 is in a private health care system, which is a market-based system, competition driving prices down. the idea would be that there would be 20, 30, 40 health care plans in every state offered. people can choose what they want with a minimum, bronze, silver, gold plan with lots of choice. that is the promise, that is the hope, that is the idea, and the great promise of this is that if you have cancer, you can't be dropped. if you have diabetes, you can't be turned away. so when everyone is covered, the risk has spread, the price comes down and the free market operates. now, you would never know that based on the criticism that you hear on television and radio all day long, but that's the truth. one of the important components of that bill that many of us talked about was the fact that
